Adobe Photoshop

Version 23.3.2

Professional image editor.

Adobe Photoshop overview

You can download Photoshop for Mac as a part of Creative Cloud for only $20.99/month (or $9.99/month if you have purchased an earlier software version).

Adobe Photoshop is a recognized classic of photo-enhancing software. It offers a broad spectrum of tools that can turn your inspiration into incredible images, photos, composites, 3D artwork, paintings, and graphics on any device.

Photoshop has become the choice of thousands of creative professionals around the world. First introduced in 1988, it still is the world's leading image-editing software.

Intuitive and clean user interface

Although Photoshop for Mac is the most comprehensive graphics and image-editing software available in the market today, it has a very intuitive and easy-to-navigate interface.

With recently improved usability, this photo-editor has become even more enjoyable to use. The interface loads as soon as you decide to use Photoshop.

A user-friendly interface updates you about new features, suggests learning content, and allows you to quickly access recent files. You can easily pick up where you left or create a new project, access cloud and desktop pictures, and open an existing document.

Convenient content-aware fill workspace

Adobe has recently announced the launch of its new Content-Aware Fill workspace. It allows you to remove objects or distracting elements from your images easier than ever before.

This new option offers an interactive editing experience. Now, you can take full Control over which "good" parts of the picture to use to replace the undesired areas. It allows resizing the initial selection, rotating, scaling, and mirroring content.

Enjoy a range of new tools

The latest version of the software provides a new Frame Tool that allows you to enjoy much simpler masking. Now, you can place shapes and text into placeholder frames and fill them with pictures. To create elliptical or rectangular forms, you only need to select the Frame Tool and press "K."

There is also a new default feature of multiple undo. If you want to view an object before changes are applied, just click Control + Z (for Windows OS) and Command + Z (for macOS). Don't worry about losing any project changes in Adobe Photoshop on your MacBook Air or MacBook Pro. With a new auto-commit feature, they are saved automatically.

What's new in Photoshop

Version 21.2:
  • In the latest version, you can make accurate selections of people with one click.
  • Now, Adobe Photoshop can find and add all available fonts to your libraries automatically when you open a project.
  • In updated Photoshop, Adobe Camera Raw workspace provides all your tools right where you need them so that you can work on your project more efficiently.
  • You can experience higher accuracy with the enhanced Match Font feature that allows vertical text, provides multiple-line detection and offers even more typefaces.
  • Now, you can change the orientation and add a rotation to any pattern in Pattern Overlays and Pattern Fill layers much more easily than before.

What’s new in version 23.3.2

If you've owned ANY previous version of Photoshop, your monthly subscription for PS will be $9.99 not $20. You are also given access to any and all updates for the software and your monthly subscription is still $9.99. They decided to go with a subscription model a few years ago because they were losing millions of dollars annually as a result of buyers of PS (back then you could purchase the Photoshop CD outright) sharing their passwords with friends, family, co-workers and anyone else who felt the urge to ask. I was angry at the change as well. But paying less than the price of a bag of groceries per month is well worth the ability to use a fully-fuctional, up-to-date version of the industry standard image editor.

If you work for a company that needs a tax write off, this may be the perfect app for you. It should say at the top "Warning! Subscription Model!" This is NOT $20.99, it's $20.99 PER MONTH! For the same functionality, Affinity Photo and Pixelmator Pro are MUCH better value for money.

I used P.Elements for many yrs, up until Adobe introduced the cow milking system. For $1 a month, I'd consider maybe, or $12 a year. Otherwise GraphicConverter is my best tool.

Goodbye, Adobe! My web host (for both my web site and our email accounts) upgraded its TLS and now I can't get emails, though I can send. I'm on Mojave. My husband, using El Capitan, can receive but not send. Try figuring that out! Using web mail is driving me mad so I updated to Catalina. Unfortunately, I don't think that's solved the email problem so it looks like Big Sur might be needed. Grrrr! And the same to the fact I have to find an alternative to Photoshop. I'm not amused with Apple, Adobe or my web host. Right now I'd like to clobber them all!

I used Photoshop for years. Started with v.1 and stayed with it until they began subscriptions. Now they advertise it for $20.99. Yeah, for 30 days. Two months of a Photoshop subscription pays for a perpetual license for Pixelmator Pro. When Pixelmator Pro is on sale, you can get a perpetual license for the same price as one month of Photoshop. I have no affiliation with Pixelmator; I'm just a very happy user. Photoshop is a necessity for some people, but Pixelmator Pro can handle the needs of many Photoshop users at a much lower price.

Photoshop lets you edit, color, arrange, and crop your photos. This is a screen print from my Photoshop window after my friend was removed from the background. One of the many grateful parts of Adobe Photoshop cracked is its simplicity. Adobe Photoshop at empirecrack is an advanced imaging software used by designers, webmasters, video editors and photographers to modify or manipulate digital images.

Once the default go-to app for image manipulation, but best days are behind it - by a long way. Still using CS6 as I absolutely refuse the subscription model, and have largely replaced PS with Pixelmator Pro ($60) and Affinity Photo (presently on sale for $40). PS now too big, too clunky, no longer useful due to various bugs and issues noted by other reviewers. Suggest others look at Pixelmator Pro if you're using Pixelmator (can upgrade to have bundle for ~$20) or check out Affinity Photo - lots of 5 star reviews.

I've been using Photoshop since version 2.5 on my first Mac, a Performa Power PC running Mac OS 7.2. I now use Photoshop CS with the Photographer's package, which included Photoshop, Lightroom and Lightroom Classic for $10 a month. A good deal, in my opinion. Sadly other Adobe Apps aren't available with similar discounts, like InDesign, Illustrator and Dreamweaver. But you don't need MacUpdate to keep up with Adobe updates. Any CS app you use will install the CS update app, which will keep you up-to-date more easily than MacUpdate. This isn't a knock on MacUpdate, it's just that things are changing. Many apps automatically offer to update themselves. As a result, I spend far less time on MacUpdate than I used to. Mostly I look for 64bit updates to the 32bit apps I use. Sadly, many of them are no longer keeping up with the Mac OS. So that, for me, Catalina is a dead end.

As the article says it is 30 years old and is VERY overdue for a start over. Apple has had the courage to start again from scratch more than once with their operating systems. Adobe needs to have the courage to start over. This application is a bloated piece of junk that has been tinkered with for 30 years. It is hard to use with a zillion things to learn. It is bloated and inefficient. It does a lot but in an inefficient way.

I go back to when it wasn't even called Photoshop. My favourite was v3 or 4, currently using CS5 and Pixelmator test version until the latter expires. I stopped updating PS when they moved to rentals as it is too expensive for my needs. Instead I can run it on an old Mac with Screen Sharing and a fast network. When the likes of Affinity and Pixelmator charge less than £100 to own software which approaches Photoshop in some areas and surpasses in many others, Photoshop looks bloated, slow, unreliable and incredibly overpriced.

Happy b-day Photoshop. We’ve been together since version 1.0.7, April 1990. You’ve come a long way baby. You’ve been a production tool used nearly daily to make a living since then. You’re not perfect (where are my Saturation curve?) but what software is. I probably will not be around to see or use Photoshop in 30 years but the ride was fun and let’s keep going.

Been using Photoshop since version 1.0 and every new version usually introduces some new exiting feature. This latest version is the first version I had to deinstall and go back to the previous version, as really basic features do no longer work now.
Tasks such as resizing a layer now only allow me to do this proportional, even if I turn the option off and drag on the middle handle. Only way to resize only width, as an example, is to enter a value into the percentage field which takes much longer. Sometimes the handles do not show up at all and you have to switch the view to another document and then come back to the document you want to work on.
Thought this might be caused by the Mac system as I am using the latest system 10.14.3 and rebooting fixes some of the issues for a little while. But then with the same system going back to Photoshop CC 2017 fixes all these issues. The new content aware fill with preview, also nice also crashes and is very slow. Overall cannot use this version of Photoshop due to these bugs.
Wanted to contact Adobe to report these issues, but there is no easy way of contacting the company, or file a bug report, maybe they think they do not have no bugs in their software? Very frustrating indeed.

Well, I knew this day would come, but Mojave 10.14 broke Photoshop CS5. I guess it's either on to Creative Cloud or learn something new...
